of advantages. plus, he is not the only politician to fall from grace and rebuild his image. bill clinton comes to mind. if he does, he will be a presidential candidate in 2016. there's a lot on the line for mark sanford. >> no way. >> wait and see. i'm saying if he wins the congressional race, it will draw a line in the sand on the most embarrassing political in south carolina history in 20 years. >> it sounds like you think he can win this thing. it sounds like you think he has more advantages than disadvantages. >> yeah, craig, you know, he -- if you look at his record of a conservative governor and in congress, one of the big questions will be, first, mark, what have you done since you left office, second, what did you do while you were a congressman and third, he has got to answer, one of after another the affair, the hypocritical way that he handled it and at the end of the day, he has a tremendous chance, name i.d., and south carolinans, they are forgiving people, but he has ten competitors and they will not like him during the race. he is the known commodity here that he demands a natio

decided not to do it. bill clinton used that license plate. symbolically it's an important move for people who live in washington. at the end of the day, it doesn't really change the status of washingtonians who feel they are taxed without being represented in d.c. but symbolically, something that washingtonians were looking for and he's delivering on that, made some people happy yesterday. >> carrie, great to see you. thank you. >> thanks, thomas. >>> as we await the president's announcement on gun control proposals, we asked and you answered, did the nra go too far by focusing on president obama's daughters in a new ad. k.j.l. tweets yes, this new ad is disgusting. you can be a member, want to protect second amendment rights and say no to assault weapons. from patricia, does the nra understand the magnitude of the potus' daughters being a member of the first family and what that entails? from rusty, absolutely. family members should always be off limits. we encourage you to keep the comments coming in to us on twitter or facebook. also, how does the white house now respond to the nra ad?

at the inauguration of bill clinton. besides being one of the most renowned and influential voices of this generation, maya angelou is a big president obama supporter and also very vocal during his re-election campaign, as well. she joins me now via telephone to talk about the inauguration. miss angelou, good afternoon to you. >> good afternoon. how are you? >> i'm fantastic. it is so much of an honor to have you on. you, of course, worked alongside reverend martin luther king, jr., back in the '60s in the southern christian leadership conference. in fact, i know dr. king died on your birthday in april. how does it feel to see the first african-american president inaugurated for the second time on martin luther king, jr., day? >> i tell you, it's so exciting it's hardly livable, that is to say young people, people after my generation can take it with more e kwaun imity, more easily, but for me having been raised in the really, the awful south, it is amazing to think that a black man, not only has been president once, but has been elected a second time. this is really rare in our history. there are on

executive order in the past. george bush 41 in '9 banned importation of some weapons. bill clinton banning importation of 50 semiautomatic assault weapons, and then in '01 banned the importation of assault pistols. you were elected in 1998 when you started serving on the hill. so explain to all of us, what was the attitude at that point when they executive orders were used at that time as compared to what you're seeing and hearing about how president obama is -- the people are talking about impeachment over the fact that he might use some executive order privilege to get gun control? >> well, actually i was elected in 1992 to the house and actually did vote on the assault weapons ban in 1994, went through reelection and it was a tough time, but the fact is i think people realize today that we've got to do something. i agree, listening to those parents talk about the loss of their children, it's excruciating. we've got to do something. i think the president realizes that and he'll take some action that he can. i don't think he will overstep his bounds, he will look at the opportunities he h

in the second term. >> do you think that this is also something like a precursor to bill clinton's globalization as well? do you believe it is the operation that the president will use five years from now when he isis trying to figure o the next five yearof his life? >> well, it will be the way ta reagan and roosevelt governed by rally i rallying the american public. there three forces in politics in america, the democrats and the republicans and the public opinion. occasionally the congress will rally against the president which is known to happen quite often. when bush proposed social security reform, congress rally and that was the end of that. and sometimes the president and congress can defy public opinion, but they will pay a price. >> and bill just talked about the legislative branch and the executive branch, but let's talk about the judiciary, because president obama in the second term could have an opportunity to nominate at least one and perhaps two supreme court justices and he has made the mark and nominated two women, and the first latina ever to the high court. let's take a listen
